Post-election protest
Hundreds of people gathered at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland Nov. 21 for an evening of commitment and solidarity to discuss their fears about immigration and the future of social services after the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president. Very Rev. James Matthews, cathedral rector, reminded the group "Love is stronger than hate. … No matter what happened in that election, nothing has changed for any of us. We were in solidarity before Nov. 8 and we will continue in solidarity." Many speakers, citizens, faith leaders and elected officials, followed Father Matthews, who read a statement by Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ. To a standing ovation, Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, said, "We're determined to fight back. We'll fight against cuts to sanctuary cities, we promise to keep them in court for the next 10 years."
